Details About the talk

Fysikeren Geoffrey West har fundet at simple matematiske love styrer byers egenskaber — at velstand, kriminalitet, ganghastighed og mange andre aspekter ved en by kan udledes af et enkelt tal: Byens befolkningstal. I dette tankevækkende foredrag fra TEDGlobal viser han hvordan det virker og hvordan lignende love gælder for organismer og selskaber.
